Entirely new sections added on sustainable and biodegradable polymers, and thermosets. A list of conversion factors for stress measures is also included. In both normal and extreme environments, outdoor use has a variety of effects on different plastics and elastomers, including discoloring and brittleness. New polymers and applications have been added — particularly in the growing automotive and medical fields — and changes in chemistry and processing technology are covered.
The data is supported by explanations of real-world engineering applications. This new edition includes new fluoropolymer grades and new examples of the fluoropolymer role in preventing corrosion. Additional plastics have also been included for polyesters, polyamides and others where available, including polyolefins, elastomers and fluoropolymers. This book is a complete compendium of information about fluoropolymer lining materials and structural piping and tubing. New sections have been added on inspection of new linings, and in-service inspection — including inspection frequency, acceptance criteria, fitness for service evaluation, and reparability.
Over 600 uniform graphs for more than 45 generic families of plastics are explained• This second edition has been thoroughly revised to include the latest data and materials. Includes expert guidance to help practitioners make best use of the data. Includes expert guidance to help practitioners make best use of the data.
Entirely new sections on biodegradable polymers and thermosets have been added to the book.
The level of data included — along with the large number of graphs and tables for easy comparison — saves readers the need to contact suppliers, and the selection guide has been fully updated, giving assistance on the questions which engineers should be asking when specifying materials for any given application.
More than 8 core chapters, which serve as a databank for evaluating the creep of plastics• An extensive introductory chapter has also been added, which summarizes the chemistry of making polymers, the formulation of plastics, creep-testing, test methods, measurements, and charts, as well as theory and plastic selection.
